Hi all,
I found a little black plastic part that looks like a funnel about 4" tall in my trunk (600 SEL) with the part number 140 782 00 31. Any ideas what that might be?

That part is called an emergency control guide and is part of the sun roof system. It is found at the sun roof motor which is in the trunk. My guess is it guides the manual tool used to close the sun roof when it is stuck open. It has a list price of $2.70.

I am not sure of the exact location for your vehicle, but it should be behind the liner on either the left or right side of the trunk. On a W124 it is on the left side.

the funnel is suppose to be located on the left side of the trunk inside the liner, and yes it si for the sun roof/moon roof. There is no other location for it. it serves as a guide will not harm operation without it.
